Black Masculinity and the Black Speculative Arts Movement

11am–6pm: Activities and workshops
7pm: Keynote

The Black Speculative Arts Movement is rooted in creating counter-narratives and envisioning counter-futures based in black self-expression. Bringing together a variety of disciplines and philosophies, including Afrofuturism, black science fiction, and magical realism, the movement finds expression in comics, film, live performance, and other visual art forms. Join us for a day exploring the image of the black male within the context of the Black Speculative Arts Movement through a range of talks and workshops, culminating in a keynote lecture by Tommy Curry, professor of philosophy at Texas A&M University.

Sign Language interpretation will be provided at the keynote lecture portion of this program.

Presented in collaboration with Harris-Stowe State University and the Black Male Initiative.
